Cienega De Flores Event in Nuevo Leon, Mexico

Abraham Luna

Our volunteers had been preparing for El Dia Del Niño (Children’s Day) for a number of weeks, since is a very important day in Mexico and we had something very special for the kids of this county. The DIF of the county had helped us in the weeks leading up to Dia Del Nino to advertise, and we went from school to school posting signs for the upcoming event. Our focus was to help the neediest areas of the neighborhood and help to create a fun, memorable experience for these poor families and children.

10,000 Activated magazines distributed throughout Mexico

During the summer months of 2008, our volunteer team in Saltillo, Mexico traveled with 10 young people some 5,000 kilometers throughout Mexico to preach the Gospel and distribute the wonderful Activated magazine. We started our trip in El Paso, Texas, and traveled south to a town called Merida, which is the capital of the Mayan culture.

Week One

Cervantino Festival 2009

Shelly Guild

Thank you for your interest and participation in our efforts to reach out and to spread God’s Word here in Mexico. We are happy to report that Project Descubrete, at the International Festival of Cervantino, October 2009, in Guanajuato, Mexico, was a success in every way. This is, in large part, thanks to your generous sponsorship of the printing of 30,000 flyers and over 18,000 tracts.

The program, which involved nearly 200 Christian volunteers, including students and fulltime missionaries, ran from October 27th to November 2nd.

Fifth Mexican medical brigade

Our fifth medical brigade came together wonderfully, despite it being held on such short notice. Volunteer doctors from Texas said they were able to come for a medical camp in only a week’s time, so it was red alert while we made preparations for places to stay, meals, and secured sponsorships for gas, van maintenance and other needs. Eight Family International volunteers hosted our fifth medical brigade, this time held in two locations over two days and nights.

Second Medical Brigade in the Sierras

We completed our second medical camp on July 18, 2009 in the high Sierras, 1.5 hours outside Monterrey. The particular village that we visited this time is at 6,600 feet altitude (Monterrey is at 2,000 feet.) The population of about 4,000 people is spread out all over the mountains. Overlooking the fertile green lake basin, you’ll find village folks with mule-drawn plows farming their portions of the land. We’ve come to dearly love these mountain folks – they are so simple, wholesome and appreciative!

We're celebrating the completion of our first medical aid event – a group effort by four Family International mission centers – held in the Sierra mountains in Nuevo Leon, Mexico on March 18, 2009.

Christmas Comes Alive - Part 1

Joanna Dimon

What better way to spend Christmas than at the City’s Children’s Hospital? Our visit came as a big surprise for the children of all different ages who where there for many different reasons. Some were terminal, some had been there already for months, and others only days, but none of them believed that anyone would remember they were there at all.

Christmas in the Sierras

This Christmas we hosted two large Christmas events for the poor in our area: one at the food kitchen where we have donated food for the last three years in the nearby Sierra mountains, and another for our local Bible study group in our little village. We’re very grateful to Activated Ministries for sponsoring the Christian books, posters, tracts, tapes, CD's and magazines that we distributed at these events.

Making Children’s Day memorable for underprivileged children in Monterrey

Emanuella Christensen

In Mexico, Children’s Day is thought of as the second most important festival after the Christmas holidays. It is a time to honor and remember children and an opportunity for children to enjoy a day of festivities, presents, and special attention from their parents and families.

1,200 books to the Garcia ghetto

Emanuella Christensen

On December 18th 2008, Rescate hosted our annual Christmas celebration for 650 underprivileged children and their families in association with the foundation “Manos que Sanaan” A.C. This event took place in one of the most forgotten ghettos existing in the county of Garcia N.L. Mexico.
